A Brick in the Road of a CURE!
Welcome to my Light The Night Walk home page.
The Light The Night Walk is The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's nationwide evening walk to raise awareness and
funds to cure leukemia, lymphoma and myeloma, and improve the quality of life of patients and their families.
I'm participating in the Walk in honor of my Mother and all individuals who have fought and are continuing to fight blood cancers. My Mother, as well as many others, lost the fight to cancer but their loss should not be a negative. Every single person who has fought with these cancers are all bricks in the road of a cure. These people are
the real heroes and we need your support to help accelerate cures and hope for patients and their families.
Although research is responsible for increasing survival rates for these diseases, the battle is far from over.
